  • I keep forgetting how much I hate how VX-MV implements fences and autotile tables.

    As for fences, it's because you can only make really short ones, otherwise it won't tile. It might be better with MZ because of how it does layers. I might be able to use a wall autotile as a taller fence.

    You could remove the counter flag, which means you'd then need to duplicate any shopkeeper logic in an invisible event ON the counter.

    @The Stranger, that's not just tables. That's ANY other autotile. This would have to be my #1 pet hate about VX-MV. I'm sooooo glad MZ will have controllable layers!

    I could, but I usually don't make tiles for just myself. If I did, they'd look very different and be more difficult to use. Making things easily usable by others means I have to follow the existing rules, even if they're extremely dumb.
    I'm trying to decide on which engine to use for an extremely basic, entirely pixel art game. It's a good problem to have, but it's making starting harder than it needs to be.

    If there's an all in one option that does that, it could be doable, but when I last tried to do stuff in MV I was using multiple plugins and pray they all got along to get things looking the way I wanted, and that was for upscaling. At the time there wasn't really anything for downscaling the engine other than the stuff for tilesets.

    I totally get that. Downscaling tilesets is probably the most important part. I believe that Yanfly's Core Engine can change screen size (and I think MV also comes with a plugin that does the same). Here's hoping that it'll be possible in MZ or that this kind of plugin gets made for it.

    Screen size is very different though. I've pretty much decided on 2k3, but I do hope that MZ or a future RM will have better retro art support. I like MV's export options, since I know a lot of people who don't use windows, so that makes Ace a little less attractive for a bigger project, even though it's much easier to work in for pixel art.
    If being stuck in isolation is driving you crazy, please remember how you feel now. Then when we're free from quarantine, use that memory as motivation to visit those who live like this all the time.

    "those who live like this all the time" are either heavily guarded, or outright don't want to be visited.

    Not really. I'm talking about those who have disabling illnesses that aren't catching or the old. Basically, the people who can't go out, not the people who shouldn't.

    Agree. We should definitely use this as a reminder of how many people deal with this on a daily sometimes even permanent basis.
    Had a visit with my doctor on my computer today. Why can't I do all my visits this way? It's so much better! Insurance was only okay with it due to the pandemic.

    I have the equipment to do it myself here, so I just gave them the results. But it was my specialist, not my GP, so missing out on those isn't as big of a deal.

    Thanks Kes! Good to see you too! If I have it, it's a mild case. I'll probably recover before Touchfuzzy.

    Yep, that's been my focus, thanks CrowStorm. Now I just need to decide which video games to play.
    Earthquake! Hehe, that was fun, and nothing broke. Strongest quake I've ever experienced.

    We're technically in a high earthquake area here, except that we very rarely get them, and it's been terrifying earthquake scientists for ages. I've lived through. . . 6? This is the biggest one yet, 5.7 So not super big, but enough to break a few things closer to the center.
    I've had three healthy days in a row! This is the healthiest I've been in . . . a decade. Time to try some of my old activities (like hanging out here).

    Please do not use Status Updates to make requests of this kind, that is not their purpose. In addition, if the person does not have a thread taking requests, it is not likely that they will take on random requests.
    Resource Type: (Characters, Battlers, Tiles, Icons, ect.)

    Does this include scripts?

    @Lilly If you're talking about the Resource Requests section, then no that section doesn't include scripts. You want to use the Script Request section in the RGSS Boards.

    I really, really like my new meds. It's amazing how solving a small underlying problem can help so many others that didn't seem related.
    Does anyone use the "Which Graphics Packs Match Which" list? I was thinking about updating it today, but I don't know if it's worth it.

    That and they seemingly only release resource pack only 2 (sometimes 3) at a time.Probably so that they don't inundate people with products.

    Most people are right only. I've never met a single person who was born ambidextrous, it seems to be a learned skill. Cross dominant is funny, the dominant hand depends entirely on what's being done and switches around.

    Yeah, my mom was born left-handed but was 'corrected' when she was young so now she does 5 things right-handed and everything else left. Real fun playing table-tennis with her though as she can switch hands mid-game -.-
    I know it's very strange to be so excited about tomorrow's surgery, but I can't help it. I'm excited to start recovering.
    It was appendicitis after all, I was right! Just a really rare form of it that doesn't show up on CTs or x-rays and comes and goes. . . .

    Please oh please track down that specific doctor. Tell the surgeons that you need to keep the biohazard for VERY good reason. The reason being revenge.

    I should have sued him but I was so messed up from the combination of drugs and throwing up everything that I couldn't remember his name. It's not worth it to me to track him down now.

    @KaBlooZio I should have said this earlier. I'm really sorry about your niece, that is a huge tragedy.
    With how graphics got streamlined when moving from XP to VX, I sometimes wonder why characters aren't only 7 frames in MV.

    Like I was going to use full screen tints for time change indications but honestly? That saps a lot of the contrast and prettiness away from the potential. So I'll probably just. Custom paint settings for morning, afternoon, evening, and night. It'll look waaayyy better that way.

    That sounds both pretty and like a lot of work. I agree with the dollhouse thing, that's mostly what I do when I make stuff in RM. I enjoy the art part and there's nothing wrong with focusing on the part I enjoy.

    Weirdly? Though I adore the step, inking by FAR takes the longest for me. It makes my paintings waaay more precise, which is necessary for projects like this. But the painting/colouring bit? Speedy. So as far as extra work goes, it's not too bad!

    Oooooh. I see. I've never seen "I am" in a contraction when it's supposed to be a full sentence, so I expected a subject. It might be one of those obscure language rules that English has. "When the subject of a sentence is implied, contractions can't be used on the verb." or something equally snooty sounding.

    Or maybe it's just a plain translation error of my side. :guffaw:

    I'm -> "Eu estou" in PT-BR. I'm working -> "Eu estou trabalhando", but we can also simply answer "Eu estou" or "Estou" instead of the full sentence.
    Sharm

    Interesting! I love learning about language quirks like that. What's extra interesting is that in this case saying "I am" would have actually worked, because I'd said "Everyone must be working hard on games!" It could be seen as a response, saying "I'm a member of this group you mentioned!" It was just putting "I am" into a contraction that didn't work.
    I'm sorry if I've seemed more proud or obtuse or mean or anything like that lately. I'm stupid from lack of sleep, it's not intentional.

One 3-day jam and a Game Awards... this month is moving... \o/
Maker-ing has been being the best thing that happened to me this year so far. it is so good to rescue some old skills fo creativity and the people I have met are really incredible. I love my coffelanders and tocudos buddies. Maybe one day I will reach other countries folks too. S2
Well... My game plays better at 1920x1080, so I guess that's the new resolution. Still runs at 60FPS. :LZSexcite: Also... I really want a boss to be able to build new maps around the player... Mostly because it's visually spectacular! I'm er... not quite sure yet how I can do that without making MV explode.... But I'll find a way, anything in service to the "sparkles"! :kaopride:
